How to Overcome the Mum’s Face
Neither the perfectly looking frame wrapped in carefully selected outfits nor the ideal locks of her hair could take everyone’s attention from Victoria Beckham tired face with the obvious signs of not getting enough sleep at New York Fashion Week the last month.
Victoria, who has a 7-month-old daughter Harper, recently said:
I’m not getting much sleep at all. Harper’s not sleeping that well, so I’m up with her, as all mums are, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s not a team of people doing it for me. I’m a working mum.”
Dr Michael Prager, Harley Street dermatologist, named another cause of the “mum face”:
Collagen levels — which give skin its firmness — also drop about six months after having a baby. Throw in sleepless nights, baby stress and a time-poor diet and you’ve got the perfect recipe for ‘Mum Face’.”
Another reason for tired face is the short period of time mothers tend to spend at home with their child. Instead, they start working short after giving birth. In case with Victoria she was engaged with launching a new fashion collection.
Dr Prager said:
The new mums who come to see me are busy, busy, busy. They’re back at work quicker than ever because they’re in cut-throat industries, and, during a recession, they and can’t afford to take time off. They’re pushing themselves harder than ever and it’s showing in their faces.”
But the good news is the existence of many ways of fighting the “mum face”.
Vitabiotics are launching the Pregnacare New Mum that is especially designed to restore vitamins and minerals lost during the pregnancy and post-pregnancy period.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energising Eye Mask is definitely worth of trying. It is filled with rejuvenating ingredients that are able to brighten any sleep-deprived eyes immediately.
The Elure Advanced Skin Lightening range is created to fade the age spots and pigmentation. As for the treatment of the “Mum face”, it can remove the greyness.
As for treatment, Dr Prager suggests Dermaroller treatment, which stimulates collages production. Angelina Jolie is a big admirer of this method and we can see it working despite her six children. This method implies rolling over the face a handheld roller covered with many micro needles. The roller creates the hundred of mini pricks thus making your skin produce extra collagen. Then the mix of hyaluronic acids, minerals and vitamins is applied.
Dr Prager said:
Skin looks fresher and younger and there’s no downtime.”
Another beauty expert- Dr Daniel Sister, a leading cosmetic doctor in London, found another way to revitalize skin.
I take some of the patient’s blood, separate it into the red blood cells, clear serum and platelets, and add anti-ageing vitamins and amino acids before injecting it back into the skin, anywhere that needs a boost.”
Dr Prager said:
Victoria would be better off worrying about her face instead of her figure.”
The leading cosmetology experts agree that the mothers of newborns should lose their weight slow and stable- nearly 11-21 lb per week. What is no less important- avoiding sugar. Sugar along with smoking and sunbed cause the skin ageing.
Frederic Brandt, Madonna’s skin doctor, commented:
Sugar damages skin cells and breaks down collagen and elastin. Avoid it and you’ll improve the radiance of your skin immediately.”
